Kansas and Missouri are in talks to play an exhibition game on Oct. 22.
Kansas and Missouri haven’t seen each other on the hardwood since 2012, but the two schools might renew the rival for a worthy cause: hurricane relief.
Kansas and Missouri are apparently in talks to schedule an exhibition game on Oct. 22 at the Sprint Center, with the revenue going toward disaster relief.
“We are discussing an event, it is very premature to talk about any specifics,” said Kansas associate athletic director Jim Marchiony, per the Kansas City Star.

Missouri left the Big 12 in 2012, and since then the Border War has been more of a border armistice, but hopefully this game will reignite the rivalry.
Kansas leads the series 172-95 all-time, and the Jayhawks have won 11 of the last 13 meetings.
